January 3 – Saint Genevieve

Saint Genevieve

Lord God, Saint Genevieve (born c. 419–422 in Nanterre, Western Roman Empire; died c. 502–512 in Paris, France) was a small child when she decided to devote her life to You. She allowed nothing to interfere. Like her, I want to have an enthusiastic and single-minded heart for You. Pray, Saint Genevieve, that I become aware of the times I’m double-minded. Help me, O Lord, to serve You above all else. I dedicate my whole life to You. Teach me to love You with my whole heart, my whole mind, and my whole soul. Bless my efforts to grow spiritually every day, and remind me of this pledge when the distractions of the world pull my attention away from You. Saint Genevieve, pray for me. Amen.
